From Inside (2012)

Song and life inspired, this guitarists' first album was written and recorded in the month of Feb, 2012, on iPad 2, using the internal mic and the Apogee Jam, in GarageBand. It has been kept pure and basically dry with a focus on song writing and improvisation. From Inside presents solo guitar and voice, almost everything in one take, with a few over-dubbed solos and harmonies. A journey of heartfelt songs, and expressive guitar performance meant to be performed live, and to give a chance for improvisational talents and accompaniment to really shine…

On My Own (2013)

A guitar, and voice. Now with bass and drums..

Out Of Nowhere (2014)

All instruments performed and written by The Hat, except Rise Lyrics and Vocals by Charlene Jones, and Like Yesterday Lyrics and Vocals by Kristen Dohan, and When The Tyrant Steals My Song by Bedouin Soundclash.
